. i want to get to washington with some of the latest headlines regarding speaker boehner and what eamon is referring to as plan b. >> what we know is the speaker is in the basement of the capital building here right now, meeting with republican lawmakers to brief them on the status of the fiscal cliff negotiation, and what a gop leadership aide is now telling news news is the speaker is now prepared to offer what he's calling a plan b, or a modified plan b in which we don't do the grand big deal that the president and speaker of the negotiating on, but instead do something much smaller that would eliminate the pending tax increases for all americans, the speaker saying that he would like to have some kind of a deal, a modified scaled-down proposal now that would eliminate those for as many people as he can. the details are very sketchy on what modified plan b actually means in practice. but basically, it's something he can keep in his hip pocket right now in case these negotiations with the president don't bear fruit. and presumably what we're talking about here, carl, is a little

of credit to the fed, perhaps, but also feel the debate shifted yesterday in washington. i began to hear way too many people say, you know what the president is curiously unengaged when it comes to cuts. i have always felt the president had the upper hand in this debate. i listened to bernanke and bernanke says, listen, i know they aren't going to come to deal. i see a lot of republicans on air saying we start to understand what they are they want as cuts. not hearing anything from the president. made me feel grim about the fiscal cliff, good about what the fed wants to do, very grim about the power of the fed, beyond what it's already done. >> the "wall street journal"/nbc news poll of americans about the fiscal cliff, some very interesting findings, just to that point, jim, two-thirds polled want congress to strike a deal and cut the budget, even if that means social security and medicare cuts. so, according to this poll, the people are saying, yes, go ahead, cut entitlements and say that obama has a mandate, among those that did not vote for obama, they have -- that they say that there is

with our xaernt washington correspondents. good morning, john. were you up all night? >> not all night, but we stayed on, of course, until 9:00 after it was clear that the house alternative had collapsed. but, joe, i was listening to your conversation earlier. this is not about the far left and the far right. this is about the republican party not being able to get its act together and figuring out and strategy and pursuing a strategy. >> i watched the press conference yesterday. all the reporterses, all the mainstream media reporters were saying, mr. boehner, why are you going through this exercise? this is an exercise in futility. why are you doing this? why even hold the vote? and then he can't do it and now all of you are going, see, see, you can't even do it. >> but it does raise questions about what this means for -- >> joe, it's not about the mainstream media. it's about the inability of this republican party to face the -- face political reality. the president was re-elected. his positions are much more popular where the country than theirs. they are locked into a caucus in the
in washington. plus how many people are selling stocks just because they'll take their gains this year. because taxes will be higher next year. >> you're seeing people with if you have a large position in a company, this is probably the right time to take it. if it's a large percentage, 10%, 15%, 20% of your net worth, sell it now. >> and if you're planning to retire in the next three to five years, you're probably better off doing your allocation change thousand than you are saying -- >> this might be awful next year, too. isn't moynihan going to -- if we go over the cliff, it's not going to be a great year for stocks. >> it won't be a great year for hiring. >> left's already started. everybody is hiring temporary workers. they're not buying. they're leasing. you have more up front costs because you're trying to defer any long tirm purchase. but that's been happening now for two months. so you can look at the other way and say if we actually get a resolution, you might have more certainty which we're all looking for and companies saying you can actually make a capital projection as opposed to
that in just a couple minutes from now but first, washington can't get its act together, no vote on john boehner's plan b and it is costing you money. stocks sell off and your taxes are likely to go up as of january 1st. here is our friday morning co. on this cliff diving day. gerri willis is here, charles payne, nicole petallides on the floor of the stock exchange. here comes john boehner to address the cameras about the collapse of his plan b. >> will will will of the house. unless the president and congress take action tax rates will go up on every american taxpayer and devastating defense cuts will go into effect in ten days. the house has already passed bills addressing the fiscal cliff. perhaps replacing the president's sequester with responsible spending cuts and did it last may. we passed a bill to stop all the tax hikes on the american people to take effect jan. first and we did that on august 1st. we propose plans over and over again that democrats used to support but now they won't. i don't want taxes to go up, republicans don't want taxes to go up but we only run the house. d
out of washington. but before we get to that, why don't we start with our day anticipates top story. the i.c.e. and the nyse are in talks. the numbers put the price tag at about $8 billion. >> we watched this -- now, you said you were watching this last night with kudlow, right? >> i did. >> did you think david faber? did you think when was book ending? on this, it went up last night. i don't know why this chart is showing no movement. it went up six points. >> yeah, right. >> that wouldn't even bring those -- because we watched. faber was talking about that last night. >> maybe if we show the prior day. >> that was the prior day. >> there's a glitch or something. >> that was the prior day that didn't show the after hours trading card. it was right about 720 been i think, wasn't it? >> and all this followed and it's a big story. >> well, it is. it's interesting because it's nyse euronext. >> and this isn't the first time that i.c.e. did this. >> no. you will are ebb that i.c.e. made a joint unsuccessful bid for control of the nyse last year. when the two withdrew their offers, they
-day strike. a major one-day march on washington for jobs and justice. >> sean: the prospectsave civil war, nationwide strike and the death threats leveled at governor rick snyder. one read, i want to shoot governor snyder in his eye. another lists the names of the family members saying, you blank our families, we kill yours. joining me with reaction, good to see you, both. good to see you with us. union violence is not new. we have seen it before. up on violence, we chronicled that. g-8, j-20, all of these summits. you see the radical left. the tea party, they are putting their hands over their hearts, pledging allegiance, singing "god bless america" and cleaning up after themselves. and the media tries to play up things that didn't happen. why is there the double standard and what do you say to the violent people on your sideanism viseen violent people on your side, sean. >> sean: who? >> i remember during the affordable care act legislation, before it was passed, death threat it's. >> sean: where? >> what do you mean? on voice mail of congressional democrats. some of them left being in
giving more money to the least competent people in america, the politicians in washington. you're talking about giving them the extra money so they could have bigger government. the fact that they're taking that money frommus in a less bad way i suppose that is good news but we're still taking one step after another in the wrong direction. at the end of that journey the destination is greece or spain or italy. melissa: right. >> we have to figure out how to get control of intitlements. the while house refuses to have adult conversation about that. melissa: neither of these proposals, neither side gets us closer to closing the enormous gap you're talking about. i say over and over again and if this was your household and bills were so far out of line with what the revenue was you could get very serious very quickly. these people do not seem to do that. for republicans is it looking more and more palatable to go over the cliff at this point? >> depends on how dogmatic obama is. like selling a car on craig's list and put it up for 5,000 and really take 4500. someone offers you 4,000. this is
, or the republicans caving on the tax side. are you seeing that infighting in washington right now? >> well, infighting is probably a harsh word. if that is a definition we infight all the time around here. hopefully it is a healthy dialogue where everyone gets a chance to express themselves. .9 of representation in america for people to give their point of view. they feel they have been heard, even if they don't get their entire way. most people, are willing to comprise a little bit. that is what we have to have here, unfortunate tax increases to balance lance our budget and unfortunately entitlement reforms particularly on health care side so we don't have the debt as far as eye can see. hopefully the speaker and president will get there. the solution is pretty straightforward. sandra: it isn't straightforward because we have so much disagreement. maybe it is harsh to call it as infighting maybe tension. more than 100 conservative leaders including former presidential candidate rick santorum, saying gop congressman will be targeted if they make concession on tax hikes. that sound like ten
